Playa Paraiso, Cayo Largo
(4.8/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
With attractive blue hues and soft white sands, it's hardly surprising that Playa Paraiso frequently makes the list of the beast beaches, not only in Cuba, but around the world. Located in a nature reserve 5 km (3.1 mi) from the more developed hotel zone, the pristine stretch of coast boasts both space and serenity, perfect for a relaxing afternoon. Take a refreshing dip in calm shallow waters, then head up the beach to the shaded snack bar for a delicious mojito or frosty beer. A handful of umbrellas, beach loungers, and restrooms provide just enough facilities, while still fostering a tranquil, untouched environment that you’ll never want to leave. Make Playa Paraiso a centerpiece of your Cayo Largo vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Cayo Largo itinerary maker.

  • I think it is the beach that I prefer ... A Bay with clear water equipped with sun loungers and parasols (little) and a bar for drinking and dining. Recommended in windy days is very sheltered!

  • Stunning beach with the Sun the colors are fantastic. On the beach there is a small bar, continuing on the left for about 15 minutes walk you get to Punta Paraiso, which I consider the best beach (a spit of sand where the currents and forms a natural pool with water so calm and transparent). For me the best on the island
